: well, coming up, a group of chrysler workers got national attention two years ago when a tv news crew caught them drinking and smoking pot on the job. do you remember this tape? chrysler took quick action to dismiss the union members who were clearly working while intoxicated, and the story ended there. until we got a jaw-dropping update today on what the bailed-out automaker did to finally resolve this issue. you will not believe this. >>> and brand new word from the intel community suggests america's days as the world's sole superpower are numbered. we'll tell you why and who could be next. >>> and this south korean rapper seen smashing a toy american tank just played at the white house christmas party. the controversial fallout over that decision and what he said, next. >> our men and women are willing to sacrifice their lives for you, for me, for the freedoms that we enjoy every single day just as my son did, and then we have someone like this individual who has called for the murder of our troops and our families being in a place of honor? that's disgusting. you won't take my lif
